    Going to disney on Aug 6th for my daughter 4th birthday I asked everyone to give gift cards instead of presents so she can do and buy what she wants my ? Is what can I use the gift cards on what restaurants or stores that I can't use it on

    Hi Nicole,

    Thank you so much for visiting the Disney Parks Moms Panel with your question. What a magical vacation you are planning! How wonderful to be visiting for your daughter's birthday. Do be sure to stop by Guest Relations at any Disney theme park to pick up a complimentary "Happy Birthday" button for her. These can also be found at other locations around Walt Disney World. If you want to customize a gift for your daughter, be sure to check out Disney Floral and Gifts, where Magic Makers can design a gift specifically for her!

    I also love having Disney Gift Cards when we head to Walt Disney World. I often give my daughter a Disney Gift Card loaded with the amount of money she can spend on souvenirs for the trip. I also love the convenience of using a Disney Gift Card to pay when I have already paid the money for the gift card before I even left home! I have great news for you. Disney Gift Cards are accepted nearly everywhere at Walt Disney World that is Disney owned and operated. I have purchased from many merchandise locations and used Disney Gift Cards for many meals at Walt Disney World. They can be used for spas, theme park tickets, and so much more. One place that you might find sometimes cannot take a Disney Gift Card are carts and outdoor merchandise locations; however, they still often can accept the Disney Gifts Cards, so just be sure to ask first.

    I hope that this information is helpful for you, Nicole. Have a wonderful time planning your vacation, and please do let us know if you have any further questions.
